Default wheel adaptors

where can i find a wheel adaptor that can make my gm 5 lug into a jeep 5 lug. im putting a dana 35 in the back of my jimmy this weekend and im just gunna get a full set of jeep rims. i also know that the rear end should now stick out a few inches so i think this would be a good route to take to get the proper stance as well. and if they dont make then i know i can i just dont know how to start really on a project like this but i do have access to a plasma cutter ran off a puter (dunno its exact propler name for said tool) and any machining tools that i could possibly need to make this happen. any info let me know thank you

Why take the time to transplant a D35? At least swap an axle worthwhile...it's your vehicle......just sayin, put something in worth swapping.

find an drum 8.8 for cheap and put that in instead, much less likely to leave you stranded with your kids in the vehicle IMO. You can get drum 8.8's for $50 and the bolt pattern is the same......but again it's yo stuff, just commenting.

if the d35 is stronger than what you got then id go ahead and do it, but a 31 spline Explorer 8.8 would be a hella nice axle upgrade.

The words locker and d35 bring to mind headaches, if it doesn't have 30 spline alloy shafts, even with mild wheeling. Hook up with sudden traction in something hidden in the mud and ...

There is a reason it was $100... they explode all the time, ESPECIALLY locked.
